Looks like Bengali actress Paoli Dam is mighty impressed by that infamous scene in James Cameron’s Titanic where Leonardo DiCaprio paints Kate Winslet in the buff. In fact, she even wishes the late maverick artist M F Husain were around to actually do the job.
Apparently, the actress, who’s making her Hindi debut under the aegis of Vivek Agnihotiri in the Vikram Bhatt scripted film Hate Story, expressed her wish list after seeing the film in 3D over the weekend.
“Paoli wished Husain saab were around, so she could have requested him to paint her like Leo sketches Kate, wearing only a heart-shaped precious stone and nothing else,” revealed our source.

Paoli bagged her Hindi debut after rave reviews of her performance in Chatrak impressed Bhatt and Agnihotri. Our source says, “The conviction with which she did the explicit scenes with frontal nudity also impressed Vikram and Vivek to cast her in the film.”
Interestingly, Paoli has hired fitness instructor Prashant Sawant, who helped Shah Rukh Khan build his six-pack abs for the Darde-E-Disco number in Om Shanti Om. “Paoli felt that she had recently added a couple of kilos after the shooting, and she wants to shed them at the earliest.”
